‘The Originals’ Season 3 Promo is Here!

The Originals season three promo is here and appears to be all about Klaus.

Klaus always says he doesn’t want to be alone, but he loves acting alone and he loves to be feared. He may or may not be feared in season three, but he sure wants people to fear him.

Everyone seems to be alone. The only one that seems to be talking to anyone is Cami. And as we know from Comic-Con, Cami is now Klaus’ therapist. How many years of therapy will it take Klaus to over come a 1,000 years of emotional scars?

We do get to see a little glimpse of Elijah and he’s feeling pretty indestructible, by saying they can’t be killed.

Hayley appears in two clips, I wonder how long till the cures will be lifted from her?

Freya is only seen at the very end of the promo, saying they’ll all fall. This really disappoints me. She’s supposed to be a series regular this season, so I’m expecting to see a lot more of her.

This promo doesn’t really tell us much of what’s going on. Just that there’s a lot of family drama going on, but when isn’t there with the Original family?

There is a brief mention of a war brewing between the sire lines, but we don’t really get to see too much of that. We do get to see a little clip of Hayley fighting and guns pointed at Elijah, but unless it’s a special kind of gun, it’s not going to do much to him.

What actually worries me is the blood coming from Davina’s eyes. Is she still trying to bring Kol back? We know she wasn’t going to give up. She’s got more power now being the Regent, but can she handle that power?

Even with the promo telling us very little, I’m still very excited for this season. We know a lot of what’s coming from Comic-Con, so the promo gives you a little visual for that.

My guess is that they don’t want to give too much away, or maybe that’s just my hope. We know there will be a lot of flashbacks and this promo doesn’t show any of that. So there’s a lot to look forward to and this promo is really just a tease.

The Originals will return Thursday, Oct. 8 at 9/8c pm on The CW.


‘The Originals’: More Claire Holt in Season 3

I have some very good news for Rebekah fans, we’re going to get to see a lot more of her in season three.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Julie Plec said we are going to get see a lot of Claire Holt in the beginning of season three through flashbacks.

“One of the stories that we’re telling is that first 10 years of being a vampire after [the Originals] fled their raging father and their mother, and how they became the cultured, posh, fascinating people that they are today. And that’s how we introduce the Trinity: through that flashback storyline,” Julie told EW.

We are going to find out who Rebekah sired and how she sired her first vampire. Then jump forward to present day and she’s in just as much danger from the Trinity as her brothers are.

Julie also noted that the these vampires won’t bring the Originals together, but actually tear them apart even more, because you kill one Original and the entire line dies.

Elijah and Klaus are already at odds, so it won’t actually be that hard to tear the siblings further apart.

I’m so happy to know that Claire will be playing Rebekah again. She was my favorite Original from the beginning. Now she does have some competition though, because I’m loving Freya. Not that I can’t have two favorite Originals.

I like Cami and Hayley, but I was upset when Rebekah left because I didn’t like there just being male Originals. I wanted more females on the show. That’s why I was so happy when Freya showed up, but now it’s even better having Rebekah and Freya. This should make for a great third season.

The Originals will return Thursday, Oct. 8 at 9/8c pm on The CW.

Claire Holt and Original Finn Returning to ‘The Originals’

We already knew that Nathaniel Buzolic would be back on The Originals in flashbacks, but Claire Holt and Casper Zafer are also going to be back on The CW show.

If you were a fan of the original Finn, you’ll be happy to hear that Casper is coming back, but for me, I’m very excited for Claire’s return.

Executive Producer Michael Narducci told TVGuide.com: “[It’s] a flashback that we’ve never seen before. We’ve always understood that the Mikaelson family, the brothers and sister, had to flee in the wake of Esther’s death by Klaus’ hands. Klaus blamed Mikael and said, ‘We have to go. Our father is insane,’ and for a very long time Mikael chased them.”

We are going to get to see the Mikaelson family after they fled. This was the beginning of them being chased by Mikael. We’ll get to see what they were like back then.

“I think it might be surprising and interesting,” Michael added.

As long as the writers keep coming up with reasons to bring back Claire, I will be very happy.

We haven’t seen that many flashbacks since the show began and with The Original family being a 1,000 years old, there’s a lot of content to work with. We’ve seen some flashbacks with Rebekah, Klaus and Elijah, but not many with all the siblings.

I’m looking froward to seeing more of Klaus’ interactions with his siblings. Rebekah and Elijah have stayed by his side for a very long time, but we know the other siblings betrayed him long ago, but what were their relationships like before that? It will be great to take a peek into the past and see what they were like back then.

Are you excited to see Claire and Casper? What are you hoping to see in the flashbacks?

The Originals return Thursday, October 8, 9/8c on The CW.

‘The Originals’: Nathaniel Buzolic Is Coming Back as Kol

Twilihours | photobucket.com

I’m not sure how I feel about Nathaniel Buzolic reprising his role as Kol. On the one hand, I’m very excited, but on the other hand, I really enjoyed Daniel Sharman as Kol and I would really love to see him come back.

For the time being, we know we’ll be seeing Nathaniel in the premiere episode in a flashback.

“From what I understand, this is going to be a flashback-heavy season, which is cool, because it means there’s more opportunity for Kol to come back and you can see more of him,” Nathaniel told TVLine.

So does this mean if Davina succeeds in bringing Kol back, he’ll be in a different body yet again? I would love them to bring Daniel back for that. He had great chemistry with Danielle Campbell, but sadly I think it will be someone new.

If you are really missing Nathaniel, you won’t have to wait long to see him as Kol again, but if October is too long, he’s also starring in another CW show premiering August 3, 9:30/8:30c.

Nathaniel was always quite funny as Kol, so him playing Jimmy on Significant Mother may be cute. Jimmy starts dating his best friend’s mother, while his friend is away on a business trip.

He told TVLine that part of his deal with Significant Mother was that he could still be available for The Originals.

“I’m incredibly grateful to Julie Plec for giving me that opportunity; being a part of that show has been a life-changing experience for me. I’ll always have a soft spot for that character,” Nathaniel said.

Will you check out Nathaniel in his new show?

Which Kol do you like better, Nathaniel or Daniel?

Check out the promo for Significant Mother. FYI, it has a naked Nathaniel in it:

New Faces for ‘TVD’ and ‘The Originals’

the-vampire-diaries-season-6There will be a lot of new faces on The Vampire Diaries and The Originals when the two supernatural shows return in the fall.

There are two more heretics joining the female heretics, Valerie, Nora and Mary Louise.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Justice Leak (Powers) will play Malcolm, who doesn’t like to be told no. He’s the eldest of the heretics and is described as the golden child. EW said: “But when he’s alone, he has the sneering, aloof air of somebody who’s been alive a very long time—with no fear of death.” Justice will make his debut on TVD in the season seven premiere.

Jaiden Kaine (Zoo) will play what sounds to be a very interesting character, Beau. He’s described as a “scary, solemn and dangerous man,” according to EW. His vocal cords were slashed and he can’t speak, but makes up for it by being very powerful. He’s also very loyal to his heretic family. Jaiden will also make his debut in the season premiere.

TVD is getting more new characters besides the heretics. Tim Kang (The Mentalist) will play Oscar, who has a surprising connection to the Salvatores, EW reported. He’s been living a Zen lifestyle off the grid for months. All of this ends when a “supernatural intervention turns him into a feral killer.”

Todd Lasance will join the cast to play Julian, a feared and legendary immoral. It sounds like Damon may have some competition next season. Julian has a “reputation for excelling in earthly pleasures.”

Depending on who you ask, he’s a creep or full of charisma. He’s always on the run leaving chaos behind him and attracts a lot of dangerous followers. He only fears being forgotten, which is unlikely.

Todd and Tim will make their debuts in episode three.

The Originals is also adding three new faces for season three.

Lawrence Kao (The Walking Dead) will play a handsome and stubborn witch, Van. He’s always stayed out of the coven’s politics, but after tragedy strikes he finds himself sucked into the war. Lawrence will first appear in episode two.

Oliver Ackland (Satisfaction) will play a vampire who has a complicated history with the Originals. Tristan was born into wealth and power, which has inflated his ego. EW said: “With those he loves, he can be equal parts warm and caring, obsessive and co-dependent. But with his enemies, he is cruel and completely merciless.”

Oliver will also appear in episode two.

The Originals is also getting another female character: “a beautiful and enigmatic vampire.” Rebecca Breeds (Pretty Little Liars) will play Aurora. She likes to draw men to her, but she can also kill those same men without even thinking about it. Rebecca will make her debut in the season premiere.

Which new character are you most looking forward to meeting?

TVD  and The Originals return back to back on Thursday, October 8, 8/7c  on the CW.

‘The Originals’: Everyone Loves Freya

Freya tells Elijah and Klaus her story.

Freya is quickly becoming a favorite Mikaelson.

Riley Voelkel didn’t make it to San Diego Comic-Con, but she was a big discussion topic on The Originals panel.

Executive producer Julie Plec brought in Riley last season to play the long lost sister, Freya, and executive producer Michael Narducci said, “Riley owned it.”

“She felt to me like a Mikaelson right from the beginning. Very, strong, very intense and 25% bat s–t insane and a very, very great addition to the family,” Michael added.

Julie said whenever you bring in another Mikaelson or another person into the cast, you wonder how it’s going to work and if they are going to fit in.

“What’s beautiful about Riley is that she’s just one of these great personalities, a wonderful spirit. She just kind of dropped right in and made herself at home,” Julie said.

She said she wished Riley could have joined them at Comic-Com, but she was at home in Atlanta with her mother.

Joseph Morgan (Klaus Mikaelson) said Riley clicked right from the beginning.

“When we first did a scene with her she walked right between Klaus and Elijah in the grave yard and kind of threatened us both, put us both in our places,” Joseph said.

Daniel Gillies (Elijah Mikaelson) joked that he wanted her off the set.

Joseph continued the joke: “I feel extremely threatened by this actress, but despite his protests we kept her.”

Joseph said we got to see a little emotional side of Freya when she told the story of her childhood with Dahlia.

“She rocked that as well, so I think at that point everyone was like, hey can she stay?” Joseph added.

“I think we should only talk about Freya,” Julie said.

Riley may not have been at the panel in person, but her spirit was definitely felt.

Michael told fans that last season Klaus was very calculated in his plan after he found out the struggles of a first born Mikaelson witch. Klaus didn’t want Dahlia to raise his daughter, but Freya was also a first born. So he took his aunt down and then made peace with his sister and invited her into his home.

Freya has wanted a family for a 1,000 years and now she’s coming into the compound while the brothers are estranged. Daniel said Freya is Switzerland at the moment.

Michael said that Freya really wants their to be peace and they will have to find a way to deal with each other.

Will Freya be able to referee her brothers and bring peace to her home?

Tune in Thursday, October 8, 9/8c on The CW to find out!

‘The Originals’ Cast ‘Veronica Mars’ Star as Vampire Hunting Detective

Kristen_Bell | photobucket.com

Calling all Veronica Mars fans, Jason Dohring is heading to New Orleans to hunt vampires.

The Veronica Mars alum who played Logan Echolls on the UPN/The CW just signed on for a recurring role on The Originals, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Jason will be playing Detective Will Kinney that THR described “as smart and confident with a very clear sense of right and wrong, who is out to bring the forces of evil to justice.”

Will doesn’t know what’s going on in New Orleans, but he has his suspicions.

It doesn’t sound like Jason will be playing a bad boy like Logan, but it should be nice to see him in a new role and going up against the Mikaelsons. He’s going to have to be a pretty tough cop to go up against the original family. Or could he be teaming up with them?

Jason will make his debut in the season three premiere.

At the San Diego Comic-Con executive producers Julie Plec and Michael Narducci told fans that the vampires the Mikaelson’s first sired will be coming to town with “an ax to grind.”

So the Mikaelson family will have more than one enemy to worry about in season three.

Get ready to meet the new detective and the sired vampires when The Originals returns on Thursday, October 8, 9/8c on the CW.

‘The Originals’ Comic-Con: Everything You Need to Know About Season 3

fdc762638e98a037b63ee3352422c210Executive producer Julie Plec was nice enough to give fans of The Originals at Comic-Con a little taste of what’s to come in season three. She brought a video that recapped the first two seasons and introduced three new villains at the end.

We were supposed to meet these villains at the end of season two, but Julie said when they saw the season finale they thought it was better to end on Klaus’s emotional moment. “Sort of just t-ing up there were new enemies to come.”

Executive producer Michael Narducci said they’ve discussed how the Mikaelsons have been around for thousands of years and have probably sired vampires along the way. We know that when an original vampire dies, their sire line dies with them. Season three will be about what those vampire’s perspectives are about the continued existence of the Mikaelson family.

When we left the Mikaelsons in season two, they had just gotten rid of their parents and aunt. “Now they get to experience what it’s like to be so called parents themselves of the first line of sired vampires. So the children are coming to town with an ax to grind,” Julie said.

Not only are there new enemies coming, Klaus and Elijah are very estranged at the moment, but they still have to work together to take care of little Hope.

Joseph Morgan (Klaus Mikaelson) thinks that when The Originals returns that Klaus will be a bad father.

“I think he kind of knows he’s messing it up, but he’s trying at least. You gotta give him that. Even if he’s warping the mind of his young daughter before she’s uttered even a syllable,” Joseph said.

While Klaus and Elijah will try to take care of Hope despite their differences, Freya will also be there to help take care of the powerful baby.

Riley Voelkel was a new addition to the cast this season and Michael said, “Riley owned it.”

“She felt to me like a Mikaelson right form the beginning. Very strong, very intense and 25% bat s–t insane and a very, very great addition to the family,” Michael added.

Julie said Riley just fit right into the cast and they really wished she could of come with them, but she was at home in Atlanta with her mom.

There has been a lot of new additions over the first two seasons, but not all of them have stuck around.

“A typical day we’re sitting there thinking about how much we love our actors and our cast is phenomenal. We’re just kind of chilling out and then the angel of death walks in and says, ‘I feel like killing off so and so’ and then we figure that out,” Michael said, as he looked at Julie.

“They have a big roulette wheel with all of our names on,” Joseph said.

“I do. I do,” Julie joked.

Julie said the best death scenes are the ones they don’t want to do. The ones that hurt.

Julie was originally determined not to kill off Aunt Jenna from The Vampire Diaries, but then someone presented Jenna’s death in a way that was so terrible, she loved it.

There are other times when an actor wants to leave.

“Just from a logistical point of view, Daniel Sharman, who was so wonderful as Kol,” Julie started to say and the crowd screamed.

Daniel got a new job, so they had to write him off. Julie did say we will see Kol again next season, this time as Nathaniel Buzolic. We’ll even see him right away in flashbacks.

Davina isn’t going to stop trying to get her boyfriend back.

Danielle Campbell (Davina Claire) thinks Davina and Kol had a special connection, which is what made them able to do so much magic together. He’s the first person who’s understood her and is very important to her.

Davina has changed a lot in only two seasons.

“I think as an actor, I love it. It’s what you really want. I’ve gotten to experience so many different arcs and I’ve really gotten to grow with the character,” Danielle said.

Cami has gone through a lot of changes since The Originals started too. She came back to New Orleans not know anything about the supernatural world and now she’s the last remaining legacy of her family. And she has a very complicated relationship with Klaus.

Leah Pipes (Camille O’Connell) said Cami saw her twin brother plunge into darkness and she sees that darkness in herself. She also may see some of that darkness in Klaus that she’s repressing.

“I think there is an untapped darkness in Cami that we potentially will be seeing some of,” Leah said.

“I think that at the same time Klaus sees that darkness in her and sees someone highly intelligent who’s vulnerable and human and fragile. And yet sees him with sympathetic eyes and looks at him not as a monster, but as a complex soul. That’s something that he doesn’t necessarily get all the time and doesn’t necessarily think he deserves completely. So there’s some attraction there,” Michael said. 

“She sees the good him,” Leah added.

“Yeah, perhaps,” Michael replied with a hint of a laugh.

“There’s silence in the audience. No one liked that,” Leah said and the panel laughed.

There’s a lot of powerful ladies on The Originals and we should hopefully see some great scenes with all of them together in the coming season.

“There’s a good faction of writers in our writers room who really believe that the female relationships and friendships are as strong and as important to the show as the supernatural stuff and as the bromance and the romance. They fight really hard to find ways to put characters together. We figure out ways to develop those bonds,” Julie said.

The big romance on the show is Hayley and Elijah of course.

“He’s going to be holding a lot more coats out in the wilderness for her,” Daniel Gillies (Elijah Mikaelson) said.

“The coats are going to become exponentially smaller and smaller. It’s just going to be a tiny jacked. Just going to be a thong. Not even. A false mustache. He’s kinky,” Daniel joked.

Daniel got serious and said that Elijah has “monumental patients and I think he’ll just wait it out,” he said.

He said Elijah will always be there for Hayley when she needs him.

Joseph interjected: “Though his patients with Klaus has run out.”

“Well that’s a thousand years of it. He’s only had like what, two years,” Daniel replied.

“I think he’s going to remain devoted to her through whatever. And to the child,” Daniel added.

When Charles Michael Davis (Marcel Gerard) was asked about his character’s failed relationships he replied: “Wait, we’re talking about my personal life now?”

He hopes that Rebekah will come back in any body.

“You say that now and then she shows up, ‘Hello Marcel. I’m finally back in my new body. 86 years old. Give us a kiss, you devil you,” Joseph said in a fake old lady voice.

Charles joked and said he liked were this was going and Joseph said he would be playing the part “in a sort of Monty Pythonesque” way.

All fans constantly want to know when the next crossover will be. Michael isn’t such a fan of crossovers. He said he’s a producer and writer on The Originals, so he has his own characters to focus on. Then he waits “for my fearless leader to tell me, actually Mike, I have The Vampire Dairies and The Originals and we’re going to do a crossover with both of them and we’re going to bring in the people from Containment too, because I am God,” Michael said.

“And there you have it,” Julie concluded.


The cast were able to make a wish for their characters:

Leah Pipes:

I’m a human, so I just want to stay alive.

Phoebe Tonkin

I think my wish for Hayley would be that Hope can live a normal happy existence. I think that’s what she would want the most.

Daniel Gillies

I think for Elijah I would want, other than his girlfriends not being incinerated. (“Oh, come on,” Joseph said.) I’m saying I’m not letting that go easily. I’m actually wishing for something dark. Sort of would wish for a great division between the brothers before conciliation. (“So that’s how it’s going to be?” Joseph said.)

Joseph Morgan

I wish everyone would just do what Klaus says because he’s always right. He knows what he’s doing. It’s for the greater good. Come on, get on board with his plans and everything will be alright in the end. Not everyone will be alright in the end, but everything will be alright in the end. (Crowd laughs.)

Julie Plec

I just destroy wishes.

Charles Michael Davis

I wish Marcel would crossover. (“Whoa,” Julie said.)

Danielle Campbell

Davina’s a witch and I think it would be really cool if she could fly. So whether it’s a broomstick or something else. I still think it would be really cool.

Yusaf Gatewood

Mine’s pretty selfish. I hate shaving, so I wish we could work something out so Vincent can grow a huge beard. (“No, we can’t” Julie answered.)

Freya is Sticking Around, Riley Voelkel Promoted to Series Regular

Freya tells Elijah and Klaus her story.

Freya is making a home for herself in New Orleans.

After getting her freedom from Dahlia, Freya is going to be sticking around New Orleans for awhile.

According to TVLine, Riley Voelkel (Freya) has been promoted to series regular on ‘The Originals’.

“Freya is going to stick around and help raise [Hope],” executive producer Michael Narducci told TVLine. “She’s allowing Rebekah the chance to go have a life by sticking around. I’m really excited to see what role this new sister is going to have in the family and how she may play off of both of her brothers. I’m really excited about that family dynamic.”

I’m very exited that we will be seeing more of Riley. I absolutely loved her betrayal of Freya. Rebekah has always been my favorite original, but Freya is coming pretty close.

The first time I saw Riley was on ‘The Newsroom’, but first she got yelled at by Will, then she was his intern. That role certainly was a stepping stone to ‘The Originals’. Now she has such a great role. She’s a witch and immortal, the best of both world. But is she still immortal after Dahlia is gone? Will she have to be carful now?

Freya finally has the chance to have the family she’s never got the chance to have. I wish Rebekah would stick around too, but Freya is giving her a chance to follow her own path. Klaus isn’t exactly the best brother, as Elijah knows too well. I foresee a lot of fights between Klaus and Freya. Neither of them take orders very well. Elijah is in a weird place. He can’t forgive Klaus, but hopefully that won’t affect his relationship with Freya.

It will be nice to have another female Mikaelson around next season. I love strong woman characters and Freya has been through a lot in her lifetime. She’s a very strong and powerful character and I’m looking forward to seeing her character grow next season.

Are you excited to be seeing more of Freya?
